Subject: Thats how good this band was
Then I grew up, the band died and bootlegs were all I have. (sorry but jam bands just don't measure up) So after many bootlegs I find my first show and listen to it and I am shocked. This is probablly the worst representation of the GD ever. Jerry sounds like he is going to pass out on stage as his hand can barely move up and down the neck. His solo on Bertha sounds like he has used up all his licks the night before and all that is left is piecmeal noodling leftovers from the night before. Bobby sounds tired, and Bruce is the only saving grace.
I guess my point is that that is how good this band was, even if the music sucked, the power of their amplification and control over the crowd could really be convincing in the moment. Enough so that you wanted more. The more you knew the more you listened, and hence the more you wanted.
